Lola Parks

LOLA is a Vancouver-based female Indigenous singer-songwriter who has been turning heads for years. From fronting a 17-piece big band, being sole lyricist/vocalist for folk rock group, Sonnenblume, she has since staged her own show, LOLA PARKS, for years. A nationally-recognized multi-award winner, including “Most Outstanding Musician – Vocal Jazz" and “Female Songwriter of the Year,” her 2011 release (Here) garnered three VIMA nominations and continues to receive international attention. Her music is evocative, fun & hypnotic: "boho chic Soul Folk Pop carried by dangerous lyrics and a seductive voice. She is a skillful and intelligent songwriter straddling genres while staying true to her jazz roots and allowing her world pop sensibilities to surface. She has created a fiercely independent musical history that includes studio session recordings, collaborations and performing around the world, leading Western Canada tours and TV/film/radio placements. The 2020 pandemic led to 10 weekly Facebook livestreams & a special Canada Day virtual concert and completion of her 4th studio album, No Apologies (out Sep. 25), feat. singles "Dreamer" (out now) and "Freight Train" (out Sep. 4). website instagram facebook twitter
